Calvin's always hits the spot! Had dinner there tonight - really nice Valentine's specials. Food was perfect! Service was excellent. Prices are great. Even our 18 month old had a great time! Very tasty, will definitely be back. Great little local spot.

Calvin's Cafe is a restaurant with an excellent chef whose meals are unbeatable. One of the wait staff however leaves something to be desired. My last experience at lunch brought a server who could not have cared less. When she approached my table, she just looked at me, no welcome, no effort to describe the menu (daily soup, daily special)... More

This is an interesting place, the service and food quality is good, as are the prices, yet the whole experience is, IMHO, let down by the lack of ambiance. The bare walls and no curtains miss the opportunity to create a warm and comfortable atmosphere that would welcome you to not only stay a while but come back. There are... More

Breakfast was ok, only one piece of toast with entree. Have gone several times for dinner and it is great for dinner. We have tried pasta specials, schnitzels, chicken, all good. Really like one of the older ladies who serves as she makes you feel at home. Good quality food and good value for your buck.

I am always observant when visiting a restaurant but I have found absolutely nothing to criticize about this one. The owner/chef is talented and imaginative and works very long hours. The food is well-prepared, fresh, and interesting. The servers are obliging and make very good recommendations as well as going an extra mile with youngsters to make sure they will... More

I have been to Calvin's many times for breakfast or brunch, and thoroughly enjoyed the food every time. We've gone with little kids and felt welcome and there is plenty for them to enjoy from the menu. I can't speak for other meals, but the breakfast and brunch is always good.

This was our fifth visit here for lunch and the standards are sinking for sure. Food was just OK, lukewarm quiche, overcooked hard French fries and a sandwich, nothing special at all flavour wise. Service however, was dreadful. Although they were not busy we had to wait for water, menus, and then the server with a care less attitude was... More
